Sunshine, warm, delicious, sunny sunshine.

redbud on the Greenway

Today’s ride (remember the wind today??) was a scoot-about on the Greenway.  With the new extended section, it takes nearly an hour to do the entire length:  the old 4.5 mile section, the 2 mile loop around the Battlefield, the new stretch at the Medical Center water feature, and the long piece out toward Barfield Park.  Fave iPod shuffle today?  Ray Charles, I Gotta Woman

Today was a beautiful day to ride, except for all the sex.  The pollen in the air was visible and tangible.  Redbuds were having sex ALL OVER THE PLACE.  I’m not kidding when I say that; I could actually feel the clouds of pollen break against my face as I was riding.

Here’s a picture of my screen porch table – I do the wiping ritual every morning.

This was a white paper towel before I used it

I was delighted to be out in the sunshine, but paid for it afterwards with the itchy eyes, runny nose, slight headache, and thin pollen film covering my face, arms, and legs.  The winds were really high today – the water feature at the new hospital was spraying sideways!

One more picture.  This sign appeared in my gym in the women’s locker room.  I’m afraid it may have something to do with me, but seriously?

It's. a. locker. room.

Okay, I’ll let you chime in.

Thanks for reading.
